Hi - I'm looking for a recommendation for another opinion from a doctor that specializes in Chiari / Syringomyelia. I have an appointment scheduled with The Chiari Instititute in April. I had a decompression surgery last year (with a different surgeon) and am still suffering from severe occipital neuralgia from that surgery. I just found out that I have a syrinx from T3-T12. I'm not sure why they never did an MRI of my t-spine before, so not sure if it was always there or if that's something new (I had a C6-C7 syrinx previously), so I was thinking of lining up another doctor to get a second opinion after TCI to maybe piece things together and hopefully fix me. Does anyone happen to have any recommendations? Thank you very much.
